HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Twickenham Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Twickenham Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a thorough analysis of the Twickenham Park property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there is concern white asbestos cement at the property. What is asbestos and does the Twickenham Park home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including soil vent pipes.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in rain water goods for example. Technically all forms (including white) are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to displace it and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Twickenham Park property will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. To work out the property's value your chartered surveyor will take into account knowledge of Twickenham Park and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Twickenham Park surveyor will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any serious legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local Twickenham Park area assumptions like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like Twickenham Park planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

Can Beer stone-built property be hard to maintain. Are there any issues that need to be investigated, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Hall Dale Sandstone to Grinshill Sandstone. Defects affecting stone-built buildings in Twickenham Park can vary, mould being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. Maintenance tips include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Twickenham Park should be able to supply local stone.
